All things planning 🖊

Hey y’all! I’m so excited that we’re doing 👏the 👏 thing 👏!

But before I go any further, if you’re not at this step yet, it’s okay. It can take time to figure out what you want or be honest with yourself about what you truly want. 

However, if you’re  ready to move forward… let’s start working on that plan.

You Need To Create a Plan To Achieve Your Goal

We always encourage others to think big when they are deciding on their goals and I want you to do the same for yourself.  It’s best not to be concerned about how you’ll achieve a goal while you are deciding what you want. You may experience negative thoughts and this can put you off setting the goal in the first place.

Once your goal is set and you have written it down and added emotion to it by thinking about why you really want it then it’s time to create your plan. If you have set a challenging goal to earn a lot more money , then it’s time to think about how you are going to do this.

You don’t need all of the Answers right now

At this point it’s easy to become overwhelmed because you don’t know how to achieve your goals. The best way to avoid this overwhelm is to break the goal down into smaller parts.

So, if your goal is to make $100,000 in the next year then you need to work out how you are going to do this. There are a couple of obvious things that you can do such as getting a second job or trading your existing job for a higher paying one. But these are not the only options available to you.

There are many people out there making considerable money on side hustles working from home. All they need is a computer and a connection to the Internet. Examples of this are affiliate marketing (you promote other people’s products and services for a commission), setting up your own online store, offering coaching services and many more.

This means the first part of your plan needs to be researched based. Take some time to look at the different opportunities that exist to make the additional money that you need.

Just use Google or your favorite search engine to find out more. If you prefer to watch videos than you can go to YouTube and search there. You’ll find thousands of videos about how you can make money online.

Make your Decision and Plan for it

After you’ve been through the research stage you can now create a more detailed plan. So if you’ve decided to find a higher paying job what skills are you going to need to land a job like this?

If you want to create an online business that you can work on from home then what do you need to learn in order to achieve this? Do you need a website? Do you need to create videos? How will you get visitors that are interested in what you have to offer that can turn into customers?

Create a Daily Plan

Taking action to achieve your goal is the best thing to do. This builds momentum every day and you’ll be surprised by the progress that you make. Take some time to break your plan down into small actions that you can take each day.

Example: If you’re starting an online store when creating your store, you’ll want to narrow down what you’ll sell, create a name for your store, etc.

Your Plan will never be Perfect

This can be one of the hardest things to accept… but you’ll have to understand that your plan will never be perfect and that you’ll need to review it and adjust it regularly. The path to success is hardly ever straight. This is the same for everyone. If you know exactly how to achieve your goal then it is not challenging enough!

Next up… we’ll dig into finding a little emotional fortitude. Building a plan and implementing it is only half the battle friends!
